Dog-Friendly Plants That Complement Your Hybrid Turf Area

Introduction to Dog-Friendly Plants

You’ve just installed your Natura hybrid turf and now you want to dress up your dog yard with some landscaping. When selecting plants for your dog yard, it’s important to ensure that they are safe and non-toxic to the dogs you are caring for. Let’s take a look at some routes you can take when it comes to dog-friendly plants.

Vibrant Outdoor Plants Safe for Dogs

In your dog yard, the landscape can be enhanced with pet-safe plants like the areca palm, ponytail palm, and parlor palm, which bring a tropical feel to your yard without the risk to pups. These plants prefer bright light but will also manage in lower light conditions, making them versatile for different yard spots. For a touch of uniqueness, consider adding a zebra plant or polka dot plant; both feature striking foliage and are safe for dogs. Additionally, the bamboo plant and prayer plant offer interesting textures and colors, perfect for a visually appealing yard that keeps the dog’s safety in mind.

Specialized Plants for Unique Yards

For those with specific aesthetic or care needs, plants like the rattlesnake plant (Calathea rattlesnake) and Swedish ivy could be ideal. These plants not only avoid harm to the dogs but also offer unique appearances and easy care routines. The rattlesnake plant is known for its striking leaf patterns, while the Swedish ivy is a robust hanging plant that thrives in indirect light. Don’t forget about the African violet and friendship plants, which are small enough for indoor settings and safe for both cats and dogs.

Top Dog-Friendly Indoor Plants

For those looking to enhance their indoor spaces, consider plants like the spider plant, Boston fern, and cast iron plant. These houseplants are known for their hardiness and ability to thrive in conditions ranging from low light to bright indirect light. The spider plant and Boston fern are particularly good at improving indoor air quality, while the cast iron plant stands out for its ability to thrive under minimal care. Other excellent choices include the moth orchid, peacock plant, and vibrant lipstick plant, which are all non-toxic to dogs and can add a splash of color to any room.

Shop and Care for Dog-Friendly Plants

When shopping for dog-friendly plants, it’s important to consider not just the safety of the plant, but also the care it requires. Whether you are looking for low-light plants that need minimal attention or something that requires a bit more care like direct sunlight, there is a wide range of options available. Local garden shops and online plant care forums can provide valuable advice and resources to help you make the best choices to spruce up your business and still be mindful of the dogs. Remember, while it’s crucial to avoid poisonous plants, it’s equally important to ensure the plants you choose can thrive in the environment you can provide.

The unique design of Natura allows you to plant dog-safe plants through it. You can use shears to cut an “X” and plant in that opening. This is not something you can do with traditional artificial turf or artificial grass for dogs due to their layers of underlayment and not allowing the earth to breathe. Whether you prefer lush foliage, vibrant flowers, or unique textures, there’s a dog-safe plant that can enhance your garden’s beauty while keeping your pets safe.
